What the Media Wont Report About Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17
2 years ago

By Ron Paul

Just days after the tragic crash of a Malaysian Airlines flight over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians and media joined together to gain the maximum propaganda value from the disaster. It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, they said. President Obama held a press conference to claim – even before an investigation – that it was pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council – just one day after the crash!
While western media outlets rush to repeat government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report.
They will not report that the crisis in Ukraine started late last year, when EU and US-supported protesters plotted the overthrow of the elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. Without US-sponsored “regime change,” it is unlikely that hundreds would have been killed in the unrest that followed. Nor would the Malaysian Airlines crash have happened. 
The media has reported that the plane must have been shot down by Russian forces or Russian-backed separatists, because the missile that reportedly brought down the plane was Russian made. But they will not report that the Ukrainian government also uses the exact same Russian-made weapons.
They will not report that the post-coup government in Kiev has, according to OSCE monitors, killed 250 people in the breakaway Lugansk region since June, including 20 killed as government forces bombed the city center the day after the plane crash! Most of these are civilians and together they roughly equal the number killed in the plane crash. By contrast, Russia has killed no one in Ukraine, and the separatists have struck largely military, not civilian, targets.

They will not report that the US has strongly backed the Ukrainian government in these attacks on civilians, which a State Department spokeswoman called “measured and moderate.”
They will not report that neither Russia nor the separatists in eastern Ukraine have anything to gain but everything to lose by shooting down a passenger liner full of civilians.
They will not report that the Ukrainian government has much to gain by pinning the attack on Russia, and that the Ukrainian prime minister has already expressed his pleasure that Russia is being blamed for the attack.
They will not report that the missile that apparently shot down the plane was from a sophisticated surface-to-air missile system that requires a good deal of training that the separatists do not have.
They will not report that the separatists in eastern Ukraine have inflicted considerable losses on the Ukrainian government in the week before the plane was downed.
They will not report how similar this is to last summer’s US claim that the Assad government in Syria had used poison gas against civilians in Ghouta. Assad was also gaining the upper hand in his struggle with US-backed rebels and the US claimed that the attack came from Syrian government positions. Then, US claims led us to the brink of another war in the Middle East. At the last minute public opposition forced Obama to back down – and we have learned since then that US claims about the gas attack were false.

Of course it is entirely possible that the Obama administration and the US media has it right this time, and Russia or the separatists in eastern Ukraine either purposely or inadvertently shot down this aircraft. The real point is, it's very difficult to get accurate information so everybody engages in propaganda. At this point it would be unwise to say the Russians did it, the Ukrainian government did it, or the rebels did it. Is it so hard to simply demand a real investigation?

Correct and to the point as usual. It is sad that so many in the USA choose to listen to the warmongers that have done so much damage to this country and to the world. The insane US foreign policy of world hegemony is a fools errand.

About media-lies, more lies, a web of false flags and deception. And about annulling the narration of Russia's responsibility for the alleged crash of Flight MH17 - one step at a time - (will be updated as necessary) - Parsifal

1. The video with the Missile-Transporter is a fake

Parsifal, July 20, 2014


One of the 'evidence' that are passed around in the Western media, is a video which allegedly shows a BuK missile unit that is 'smuggled' back to Russia.

With this is said, flight MH17 to have been shot down and the separatists wanted so destroy evidence.

This claims Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the Ukrainian interior minister, and he said that the video was made by agents of the Ukrainian secret service in the early morning of Friday.

'On the firing unit to two missiles are missing


'it's not hard to guess why',


Gerashenko said.


'There were exactly those missiles which brought the 300 innocent passengers to death',


he added.


After careful analysis of the recording but it turns out the video was not referring to an area controlled by the so called pro - Russian rebels, but in an area where the Ukrainian army is in control.

The proof is therefore a fake.

image top: The poster is in Krasnoarmiysk and not in Krasnodon


Residents of the concerning area who saw the video have come forward and said that the advertising poster for a car brand that can be seen on the video, is not located in the area controlled by the rebels, in Krasnodon near the Russian border, it is somewhere else.

Namely, in the city Krasnoarmiysk and it is an advertisement of the car dealer at the Dnepropetrovsk road number 34 since May 11th and today control the military forces of the regime in Kiev this city.

Therefore, the recording comes from Gorkij Street in Krasnoarmiysk ...

The Difference between the Flights MH17 and AH5017
2 years ago

The following article is intended to show the difference in how the Main-%#&!*%-media report on the crash of Malaysia Airlines MH17 and Air Algérie AH5017.

(No, I refrain to write the headline as in the MSM to flight MH17 like

'Obama's Missile'


'Hollande's Missile'.


On Thursday July 14, a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso traveling to Algiers crashed in Mali for unexplained reasons.

It should have been killed 110 passengers and 6 crew members.

The crash site was now discovered with the help of French reconnaissance drones.

France has troops stationed in Mali, which fight 'rebels' there.

Parsifal, July 25, 2014

Algerian McDonnell Douglas MD-83

Besides the fact it is in both cases about civil aircrafts, which were traveling at about 10.000 meters and suddenly fell from the sky, there is a striking commonality.

Both were flying over a known war zone where battles take place.


As for the crash of AH5017 is reported in the media, they do not know anything about the cause and everything is open.

It is not even made a fuss because of this machine, it is all about blaming the Russian Federation and in particular President Putin with new lies over the crash of MH17.

There is general agreement among commentators and experts that have appeared in the TV, we have to wait until the black boxes have been evaluated.


It is speculated, it can ...

- have been the weather

- Or a mechanical failure on this old machine

- Or a pilot error because poorly trained

- Or a bomb exploded on board (terrorist attack)

and finally ...

- The rebels in Mali have shot the machine down with a missile


The latter cause is but immediately brushed aside, as is claimed that the rebels in Mali have no air defense system that can shoot up to a height of 10 kilometers.


In the case of MH17 immediately the cause of the crash was announced by the media and even the culprit identified the same.

It was from the rebels controlled area shot a BuK surface to air missile.

Since there are so-called 'Russian separatists' and the air defense system BuK was made in Russia, Russia and so Putin are responsible for the deaths of 298 people.


Another cause of the crash as with AH5017 has been not mentioned, not a bomb, not a pilot error, not a technical fault and not the weather...

The Difference between the Flights MH17 and AH5017

We have serial crony's at all levels.
Other countries like Israel and Saudi Arabia.
Financial market crony's via central banks.
Corporate crony's via preferential taxes, subsidizes, sweet heart government contracts and regulations to suppress competition
Media crony's via regulation and ownership by corporate crony's
Union crony's via suppression of right to work layered with nepotism.
This repeats itself on the state and local levels via those governments.
In this case it's the Kiev Ukraine political class seeking USA crony status and IMF Trojan horse funding with digital money from crony bankers that has been created without any production.
We are bring told that the political and financial class make our prosperity possible. Really? THEY PRODUCE NOTHING. They take. They are never satisfied. They create problems and obstacles to those that are productive.
The Ukrainians are being foolish. Their elites will rob those that are productive. They will create chaos and death all the while enriching themselves. Then they will have to pay back "loans" to the international banking elites. This "money" is created from nothing, but the people of the Ukraine will have to be taxed to pay back in real goods and services.

Aloha Dr. Steve (wonderful comment - could origin from Dr. Ron Pauls pen)


As I have written, when the Ukrainian Crisis really started in my article

Dear Ukrainians !

(actually a translation from a lecture from (end of) 2013 Nikolai Starikov, Russia's leading political writer about the plans to destroy Ukraine and hand over to the banking industrial complex (IMF) and military industrial complex (NATO war-machine)

'Ukraine will have to give up her sovereignty and carry out a series of economic measures that Europe needs.

But which not the Ukraine needs herself.

Here is neither economic nor political logic to find...'.


'Dear citizens of Ukraine!

No one in the West plans to make your life better.

They thought, think and will think only of themselves.

Ukraine they only need as a basis to reach their own goals.

And in order to weaken Russia they will be willing to split Ukraine.

Think about it and I think you will agree with me’.

It is all for global hegemony, geostrategical interest (oil, gas, pipelines, natural resources, stationed forces - missile defense [caugh caugh]).

Life has no value, not one, not thousands, not milions.


If the U.S. State Department chevy against Russia it is all a long-planned agenda.

The next war (WW IV) will be carried out in Europe and the collapsing U.S. empire will survive for one more while,... stealing what remains.
